SUIT AGAINST DANA.-In New York,
a snit has been commenced against
Mr. Charles A. Dana, in the Supreme
Court Chambers, by a Mr. J. B.
Lamar, for the recovery of $100,000
damages for alleged false imprison?
ment by defendant's order whiln
acting as Assistant Secretary of War.
L?mar says he was arrested in Sa?
vannah, on the 27th of April, 1865,
and taken to Washington, where he
?was confined in an ill-ventilated and
vermin-infected cell. After suffering
three months' imprisonment, ho was
released on parole. Dana's counsel
moved to transfer the action to a
United States Court. - Plaintiffs coun?
sel opposed tho motion, on the
ground that the Act of 1867 affirming
the validity of the President's procla?
mations, virtually repealed the Act
authorizing the transfer of such cases
to United States Courts.
There is to be a meoting in tho city
of New York, on the 22d of February,
of the victims of the despotio power
which Secretaries Seward and Stan?
ton wielded during tho war. This
meeting will be largely attended, as
many have already liunouuced their
intention of being present. They
embrace Governors of States, Sena?
tors, members of Congress, clergy?
men, doctors and lawyers, and the
Convention will represent as much
intellect as ever assembled iu tho
United States Congress.
Au old gentleman from George?
town, attended Mr. Johnson's new
year's levee, and complimented him
by saying that he had shaken the
hand of every President, and felt
gratified to clasp that of the last
President. Query: Is Mr. Johnson
to be the "last President?" That is
what tho rebels said of Mr. Lincoln.
But, ,lMr. Johnson smiled," says the
chronicler, and so, we suppose, he
either has no fears, or "is williu."
Gen. Cunby's first special order
for 18G8 authorizes organization of a
loyal armed police force in four Coun?
ties of North Carolina, white and
black, in ratio of registered voters,
namely: Lenoir, six whites, seven
blacks; Jones, five whites, five blacks;
Craven, ten whites, twenty blacks;
and Pit, eight whites, ten blacks.

Fancy the Dismay whirh would
prevail In Ttiounaiitlu of Households
if it should he suddenly announced through?
out the United States, Canadas, the West
Indies and Spanish America, that no more
HOSTETTER'S BITTERS would he manu?

specific for dyspepsia, and preventivo of
all malarious diseases, would he lest to tho
world! The bilious, the feeble, thc despon?

tho sedentary student; tho bottler on the
frontier of civilization; tho toiler, cooped
up in crowded city tenements; tho conva?
lescent, needing an invigorant; the shiver?
ing victim of ague, and the nervous of
both sexes evorywhero, would learn, with
grief, too deep for words, that the moat
celebrated corrective, invigorant and alte?
rative of the age, had been blotted out of
existence. As a preparatory antidote to
epidemic disease, a genial stimulant, a
promoter of constitutional vigor, an appe?
tizer, a stomachic, and a remedy for ner?
vous debility, no medicinal preparation
has ever attained tho reputation of Hos
tetter's Bitters. It is the household tonic
of tho American people- has been so for
twenty years, and ia all human probability
will be so for centuries to conic. The mag?

that it is emphatically the medicine of the

Gentlemen: I am weU pleased with the
result of tho UBO of tho "Double Refined
Poudrotto" on my crops. I tried it on both
corn and cotton, and am satisfied wherever
it was applied the yield was more than
donblo what lt would have besn without ii.
I regret exceedingly my not using it more
extensively the present year, but will try
to make up my loss by purchasing a larger
quantity next spring. I regard it as the
cheapest, most reliable, and easiest man?
aged fertilizer within my knowledge, and
cheerfully recommend it (as I have tried it
thoroughly) to the farmers of this section,
and particularly to those planting cotton,
from the fact of its causing 'it to mature
from ton days to two weeks earlier than it
would without tho use of tho Poudrette. I
also usod it on my garden, and found it of
nindi benefit to all kinds of plants. Yery
respectfully, Ste. G. 8. OGLESBY.

Martin, of Hampden, Sidney College,

Sir: Tho Double Refined Poudrette I
bought for two other parties in connection
with myself-one of them used it on cotton
and corn, and thinks it answered finely;
tho othor put it on cotton, on very poor
ground, and thinks it doubled his crop. I
used it on corn. It answered finely, and
was thought by tho hand that cultivated
tho crop to be fully equal to Rhode's Super
Phnsphato. I also used it on about an
ncrcof cut ton, and I am clearly of opinion
that it is tho heft and cheapest fertilizer
in use, and I expect to order several tons
this winter. Yours, very resp? etfullv,

Sir: lu reply to your inquiry ol the rc
oalts of our experience in tbe us?; of your
improved Poudrette-purchased of you for
this year's cotton crop-we would beg leave
to say that tho present season has been
:>ne quite unfavorable to the action of aU
Several kinds of manures were used by
ns, with the except i n of ymir Tondit tte,
with little or no effect to the crop.
Where the Poudrette was used, it gavo
us near half a bale more per aero, and
caused the cotton to op? n much curlier;
and wo would, therefore, recommend the
sumo as a concentrated manure for tho
growth of cotton, as well as improvement
to tho sid'. Yours, very respectfully,
